1904-1967 But What Would A “PANTHER” Motorcycle look Like Today?

I named the bike not from the “M” series but used “S” as not to state the credentials for a new engine and not detract from the original.

With icon looks held the rear suspension units are gas assisted and angled to enhance the lines I used in the design. The traditional front forks have been substituted for a modern but “Springer” type setup again with gas assisted single or twin shock unit configuration.

The “S180” here is in two different colour options of Green/Purl and Black/Purl. The two versions share different brakes and different tank protectors but apart from the colour are virtually the same and share the same engine although a possibility of accessories/options and different engine states of tune could be an option. The screen/shroud is mainly cosmetic and designed to enhance the modern look and take the bike away from the retro category...
Engine case design, frame. logo etc and all about my "PANTHER S 180" design was taken into sincere consideration...
ABOVE: In black with Mag wheels alternative brakes to the Green model.
I put together this advert to show the type of image I would present the PANTHER in. 
Here is the Black version of the S 180 the spoke wheels...
Different colours make for different effect and appeal...
Another option in a sage Green which gives the PANTHER a different feel, look and appeal...

What I called the MP (Max Pack) with optional extras such as a tail rack, striped colour coded mudguards, engine protraction bars...Maybe performance upgrades...
